Hell or High Water Trailer

Chris Pine is keeping the wiry beard that he grew for A Wrinkle in Time, and taking it back to the 14th century for a reunion with his Hell Or High Water director David Mackenzie.

Pine stars as legendary Scottish outlaw and leader Robert the Bruce in Outlaw Kinga Netflix film following the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century. Though there’s little resemblance to the sun-bleached neo-Western that was Hell Or High Water, Mackenzie is in his element as a proudly Scottish director, and will surely bring out another great performance from Pine.

Damnation trailer

Before even watching the trailer for USA’s new drama, Damnation, one name attached to the show already had me sold: David Mackenzie. The director of Hell or High WaterStarred Up, and Perfect Sense directed the pilot of Damnation, which pits brother against brother and the rich against the poor in the 1930s. In the first trailer for the James Mangold-produced series, the epic setting, the blood feud, the class warfare, and the shootouts show off material perfectly suited for the director of Hell or High Water.

Below, watch the Damnation trailer.

next james bond

Like any massive machine that has been in operation for decades, the James Bond franchise is sometimes slow to get rolling. But once it picks up speed, nothing can halt its progress. Following yesterday’s news that the 25th 007 adventure will hit theaters on November 8, 2019, and the rumors that Daniel Craig is very close to officially signing on to return, we know who the Bond producers are eyeing for the director’s chair.

And while they all come from different filmmaking backgrounds, they have one thing in common: they all have a big hit, either financial, critical, or both, in their wake.

Hell or High Water pic

David Mackenzie’s sweaty western heist film Hell or High Water was ripped straight from the headlines last year, depicting the aftermath of the mortgage crisis as a Robin Hood-style revenge thriller. It resonated with audiences and critics alike, earning four Oscar nods and catapulting Mackenzie to a higher level of recognition.

For his follow-up film, Mackenzie is looking to reteam with stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster for Outlaw King, an “epic period drama” about Robert the Bruce. And yes, before we go any further, Pine is in talks to play the Scottish king. Take a second to let that sink in.

Scarface remake

If there was one way to make the Scarface remake more compelling, hiring Joel and Ethan Coen to rewrite the script does the trick. The Universal project, which recently lost director Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer), is getting a polish from the Coen Brothers, who’ve done some well-known rewrites throughout their careers. Sadly, they won’t direct the Diego Luna-led remake, but Universal is considering Peter Berg (Patriots Day) and David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water) for the job.

Below, learn more about the Scarface remake.

Hell or High Water Trailer

Ben Foster and Chris Pine play incredibly convincing brothers in David Mackenzie‘s knockout drama, Hell or High Water, written by Sicario scribe Taylor Sheridan. Tanner (Foster) and Toby (Pine) have their differences, but they’re definitely from the same family. Their mutual trust, their shorthand, their inside jokes, and how they express themselves — they’re cut from the same cloth. The criminals are far from heroes, but their tight bond makes them surprisingly empathetic in Hell or High Water, which hits home video tomorrow. To celebrate the release, we’ve been premiering a clip from one of the film’s bonus features.

Below, watch a clip from a Hell or High Water featurette.

Hell or High Water trailer

Chris Pine and Ben Foster kicked off the year with The Finest Hours, a tale of heroism and survival at sea. Now they’ve reunited for Hell or High Water, which seems like it could have been an alternate title for The Finest Hours but actually has nothing to do with water at all. Instead, the crime drama directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up, Perfect Sense) centers on two brothers in West Texas who rob a string of banks to keep their family farm from going under.

Before long, their spree catches the attention of the authorities, represented here by two Texas Rangers played by Jeff Bridges and Gil BirminghamHell or High Water got some very good reviews at Cannes earlier this year and is now on its way to U.S. theaters. Check out the latest Hell or High Water trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Hell or High Water

Lately, we’ve seen some trailers that begin with advertisements for the trailer. I don’t understand this trend, but it seems to keep happening. Hell or High Water is the latest trailer to begin with an ad, including shots we see later on in the footage. Why you’d have to sell a trailer to someone who’s already decided to watch it is beyond me, but enough about that. Let’s instead focus on Hell or High Water, the upcoming film from Starred Up and Perfect Sense director David Mackenzie. Mackenzie’s thriller stars Ben FosterChris PineJeff Bridges, and more.
